Latvia take on a rejuvenated Norwegian side on Saturday evening as they look ahead to the World Cup qualifiers with hope and enthusiasm.
The home side are currently sitting in 4th place in the table with 4 points on board after 4 games played. They will look to upset Norway, but they know that they have a difficult task ahead of them in order to do so.
Latvia come on the back of a 3-1 victory at home against Gibraltar which saw goals from the likes of Andrejs Ciganiks who scored in the 89th minute and Vladislavs Gutkovskis who scored twice in the 50th and 85th minute of the game respectively.
On the other hand, Norway currently sit in 4th position in the table with 7 points on the board after 4 games played as they are level on points with Montenegro and the Netherlands and they will be desperate and hungry for a win against their opponents to be in the driving seat to seal a place in next year’s World Cup.
Norway come on the back of a 1-1 draw against Netherlands which saw Erling Haaland score in the 20th minute of the game.
